What is dental negligence?

Dental negligence is simply when negligence has occurred during a dental procedure that has left a patient suffering from physical or psychological distress. These cases are rare but when they do happen can leave you with serious discomfort and sometimes long-term damage.

What can I claim for?

Dental negligence can come from any dental procedure, but some of the most common cases that we deal with claims for are:

  • Nerve damage
  • Carrying out the wrong dental treatment
  • Failing to manage and treat decay
  • Inadequate root canal surgery
  • Incorrect oral surgery
  • Extraction of the wrong tooth
  • Accidental injuries whilst performing dental surgery
  • Equipment being swallowed
  • Failure to manage gum disease (periodontal disease)
  • Mistakes leading to loss of sensation and/or taste
  • Incorrect diagnosis

Cosmetic treatments such as botulinum injections (botox) are increasingly being carried out in the dental surgery environment as a result of lack of adequate regulation.  These types of procedures being performed without the required expertise and knowledge can result in scarring, swelling and other long term injuries affecting confidence and dignity.

No Win No Fee:

Youngs Law offer no win, no fee for all of our medical negligence claims, so if you don’t win your case and receive compensation, you don’t pay us a penny. We will also wait for any fee to be paid to us when you receive you compensation and not upon winning you case.
